    Aikman, Emmitt, Irvin, Woody & Allen. Just going with the era I was born into. Much respect to the historic greats though! Just never got to watch them live.

    Players still need a coach, and there is only one as far as I will always be concerned. I don't care if Garrett wins 5 more trophies, he is no Coach Landry. No one is. I do want those 5 trophies though, and a lot more.

    Don't get me wrong, I've watched film of them online and NFL films. Just feel weird rating them not being from those eras and being present when they were players, etc.

    I would love to see Darren Woodson teamed up with Cliff Harris during each their prime. Put Sanders and Renfro on islands and the Dallas defense would have 3 and outs all day long.

    Your lineup looks like some of my old downloaded madden rosters :D I actually almost put Deion/Haley in there but couldn't justify them over Woody or Allen. Admittedly, Haley was much more integral than Woody but Woody is Woody. Woody:D. Great topic!

    Roger Staubach
    Bob Lilly
    Emmitt Smith
    Randy White
    Michael Irvin

    If we're including more than players, drop White and Irvin and add Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson.

    If it's just players:

    1. Emmitt Smith
    2. Bob Lilly
    3. Roger Staubach
    4. Troy Aikman
    5. Larry Allen

    If it's the whole franchise, put Landry at the top, make Jimmy Johnson fifth, and drop Aikman and Allen.
